THE PACKED CONVENTION OF THE
brother of the Chicago Democrat, has over-
acted in procuring his nomination for Con-
gress. The case is pretty plain that he
packed the Convention for his benefit. In-
stead of that Convention mooting to deliber-
ate, they met simply to carry into effect an
arrangement made by Weniworth and a few
others, t.iL'n'c liim the nomination.

Murphy — to blast him in the estimation of
the people of the District, as wo havo reason
to believe, a most infamous charge was pub-

less than a charge of Sodomy against Dr.
Murphy. While Murphy was attending to
his duties as a Representative of Cook and
Lake counties in th« Lcgislaturo, two hun-
dred miles from home, this charge was pub-
lished in the Democrat, and scattered over
